This Easy Dark Cherry Sauce can be used in a lot of different recipes including cherry pie (of course), as a topping over ice cream or an icebox pie, and even savory items like pancakes or crepes.


Units Scale
  • 4 cups Organic Fresh Dark Cherries
  • 2 cups Sugar
  • 4 tbsp Cornstarch
  • 2 tsp Almond Extract


  1. Begin by washing the cherries. Remove the stem, and using a cherry pitter, remove the seeds.
  2. Into a medium-heated pot, add your cherries, sugar, cornstarch, and almond extract. Stir to combine ingredients. Cook covered for 5 minutes or until the sugar completely dissolves, stirring occasionally. Cook uncovered for an additional 10 minutes until sauce comes to a light boil, stirring occasionally.
  3. Allow sauce to cool and come to room temperature before using it.


Add more cornstarch to achieve desired consistency.
